who are we?
The Next Gen Digital State (NGDS) research group addresses the technological complexities of how governments can satisfy the current and future needs of their citizens. We focus on digital government ecosystems by investigating technologies that support digital transformation, innovation and implementation. Our research group collaborates with Estonian and international public sector agencies, ministries, and departments for developing next-generation government-technology through cutting edge research topics focused on artificial intelligence architecture, requirements engineering, data analytics, and understanding the socio-economic effects of technological implementation. We strive to be on the forefront of public sector innovation research!
Head of the Research Group: Ingrid Pappel
Research Group Members: Eric Jackson, Richard Dreyling, Teona Gelashvili, Alena Labanava, Regina Erlenheim
Our vision is to positively impact and transform the next generation of global digital-governance ecosystems
Provide cutting-edge interdisciplinary research that focuses on the practical and theoretical, enabling the successful implementation of digital government solutions and policy
The human and technological aspects of next generation digital transformation
The implementation of Artificial Intelligence, novel architectures and data strategies
Analysis of existing business processes and the migration toward new methods of conducting business
WHich problems can we solve?
The research group investigates problems facing the implementation and development of next generation digital technologies as they apply to public and private sectors.
We can answer questions such as:
- How can AI help revolutionize government services?
- How can new architectures enable innovative methods for secure data exchange?
- How can you ensure your government´s technology infrastructure is ready to implement these technologies?
- How can you ensure your data can be used in these processes?
how can we help you?
Cross Border Data Exchange
Our experts research the newest architectures and ways to securely exchange data using novel micro-services and event-driven architecture
This research group analyzes and investigates the use of AI inside of government as well as specifically in the enablement service provision using virtual assistants
Our experts investigate whether consumer populations within the citizenry are willing and able to adopt these novel technologies in relation to service implementation
